First Steam Greenlight Selections

Valve announces the first 10 titles being added to Steam thanks to the new Steam Greenlight program, saying they will be released independently in the months ahead. "The Steam community rallied around these titles and made them the clear choice for the first set of titles to launch out of Greenlight," said Anna Sweet of Valve. "Since launch, hundreds of titles have been submitted, with more coming in every day. We expect to be announcing more titles coming to Steam via Greenlight soon." Here are the ten honorees:

  • Black Mesa
  • Cry of Fear
  • Dream
  • Heroes & Generals
  • Kenshi
  • McPixel
  • No More Room in Hell
  • Project Zomboid
  • Routine
  • Towns

Nice theory you have there. I made the mod from 2010-2011 for myself first because after 10 years of talk nobody else would do it. Said that multiple times and only shared it with a handful of friends at the beginning.

So what? Still doesn't mean you don't have a problem with the 'hype' you said the team themselves generated?

I've been critical of Black Mesa since LONG before then. Previously I hadn't been part of a mod team since the Quake 1 days. Between those times I was too busy doing contract work for things I can guarantee you have played/watched.

Yeah? Like what? Put your money where your mouth is. *Amaze* us with your incredible work, if it's true?

pnag, I'm surprised you didn't work another line about your child into that reply. Bravo.

Possibly the cheapest shot I've ever had at me, as it's actually at my FOUR MONTH OLD.

To put it in context for others, one of the voice actors from the mod ON A DIFFERENT FORUM mentioned the delays on the mod were because of personal things, like final exams, babies being born etc. I mentioned that I was involved in a lot of projects outside of my daily work, and since my child was born, I've had to give them all up, so I have some small understanding of what the team must have gone through. Max now throws it in my face. You, sir, are a total asshole. How dare you.

What was the full context of my quote from 2005, btw? I'm curious. Link to the original post, please. Looks like I hit the nail on the head. Who would have guessed (beside myself) seven years later the mod would still not be finished.

Sorry - you can't squirm out of this one.

Over-ambitious mod teams that will NEVER EVER EVER be released... Case in point, Black Mesa: Source. There's a better chance of seeing Half Life 6 before this sorry heap.

NEVER EVER EVER? How's Friday for you? Context be damned - you look like a clown.

And I'll ask this civilly at least - don't ever mention my child again.
